SXSW PanelPicker is now open and we’d love your help in getting on stage in Austin! This year we have some really great speaker ideas coming from Ask CTO Lisa Kavanaugh; Robbie Waeschenfelder, Director of Marketing; Matt Binkowski, Sr. Director, UX Design, Strategy, & Execution; and Valerie Combs, VP of Communications.

While speakers are determined partly by SXSW judges, a large portion of the selection comes from the community! And that’s where you come in.

Most important is doing #1 but we’d love for you to spread the word by urging your friends to vote, too!

1.       Sign up for the PanelPicker and vote the panels. Here they are:

·         Why the Neanderthals were Lousy Entrepreneurs

·         Building an App on Speed: From 0 to 60 in 6 weeks

·         Going Old School with Retro Marketing for Startups

·         Mobile Marketing – Death to the QR Code

·         Jailbreak Users with New Social Experiences

·         Grassroots Marketing: Local, Organic and Fresh

2.       Post the panel on Facebook.

3.       Tweet about it. Don’t forget to use the hashtag #SXSW

4.       Your professional friends are a great network, too. Post it on LinkedIn.

Voting ends on August 31. Thanks in advance for vote!
